Tuesday 13th April PLENARY SESSION
Philosophy of Science: "The Pirates of Positivism and the Rascals of Relativism"
Presenter: Steven D’Allessandro
In this talk Dr. Steven D'Alessandro will demonstrate how an understanding of the philosophy of science is crucial for the successful completion of a PhD thesis. Although many approaches and methods are used across various disciplines in business all are subject to providing refutable knowledge. There is of course no agreed scientific method or philosophy of science which explains its progress of knowledge but Dr. D'Alessandro will show that a basic understanding of various philosophers of science can greatly improve the depth and understanding of higher degree scholarship.
